Just a few months after the re-registration of Boeing’s 737 Max crisis jet, there was another incident with the airplane model in the USA!
During a flight from Miami to Newark near New York on Friday, the pilots switched off an engine due to mechanical problems. In the end, however, the plane landed safely, said American Airlines. All passengers could have left the plane as normal, and the crew was safe too.
The cause of the incident were problems with the oil pressure on one of the engines, said American Airlines.
Boeing merely stated that the company was aware of the incident and referred to the airline for further information. The US aviation authority FAA announced an investigation.
After two crashes with 346 deaths, the 737 Max was banned from flying for around 20 months and was only allowed back into the USA in November. In Europe, the machines have been back in the air since February.
At that time, the reason for the accidents was defective control software. There is no evidence of a connection with the incident on Friday.
